The refresh API allows to explicitly refresh one or more index, making all operations performed since the last refresh available for search. The (near) real-time capabilities depend on the index engine used. For example, the internal one requires refresh to be called, but by default a refresh is scheduled periodically.
The refresh API can be applied to more than one index with a single
call, or even on
_all the indices.
